    Sorry, busy week. Yes, controllable from a different suburb and city (but fortunately not a different continent!). I have the option of controlling via a PC based locally in the room that I VNC into,...

    GH5 Is a properly remote zoom lens a thing?

    I'm attempting to build a remote video studio as fully featured as possible. In a previous build I used a PTZ camera but the aim here is to bump the IQ up a wrung to cine camera level using a GH5S or...
  4. Cine-type camera with remote zoom and focus?

    I posted here earlier, but briefly by way of background I'm trying to design a remote controllable studio. I know PTZ cameras are a fallback but I'm not super in love with the look we get out of...

    I think you might be right. I downloaded the ZCAM PC software and got comprehensive exposure and setting control but no mention of zoom or focus. I have a ton of questions so might take them over to...

    That's interesting. I assume the Z CAM focus and zoom control is limited to a few 'kit' level lenses, like in the Blackmagic Studio cameras?

    I'm designing a remote studio. One of the requirements is a good quality UHD camera. I'm struggling to find a solution using a cine camera whereby the pan, zoom and focus can be controlled remotely...

    PTZ-friendly teleprompter?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have a recommendation or experience with a teleprompter that can accomodate a PTZ camera? They tend to be more enclosed boxes rather than have cloth covers. I'm looking at the...

    ND options for Canon CN-E 24mm T1.5

    I find myself in the unusual situation of moving into a team whose kit includes the beautiful Canon 24mm cine lens but not much else in the way of support for it. It also currently gets paired with a...

    Great in good light seems to be the consensus. I'm okay with writing it off after a few hours use as it just wasn't up to the task of covering a low light event. Unsurprisingly, in retrospect.

    Well got a pair of Yongnuo YN900's. They're great little units - fan replacement is in the works - with a nice punchy output for the size, good battery life and lightweight. Remote is a plus. Lack of...

    I echo this. Compressed codecs are often dramatically (and unfairly) underrated for all but the most extreme grading and FX work. Even then they'll usually get by okay unless you're working on the...
